The Leong/Chun House, built in 1955, is a two-story house. The structure has a flat roof and is comprised of cantilevered steel I-beams and exterior walls of white brick and wood resting on a concrete brick foundation. The interior features exposed beams and rafters, structural brick walls, and a fireplace with copper hood and light colored kiln brick wall. The Leong/Chun House is significant as an example of the work of locally renown architect Alfred Preis. It is also an example of the International style of architecture built in Hawaii in the 1950s.
